What a smart post. They don't see the connection, apparently.

I'm not a huge fan of Russell Brand, but this is epic:



I love the look on his face when asked whether he prefers stand up or making movies.

But he made a huge point on how ridiculous broadcast news can be. "Is this what you do for a living?!"

Well down, Russell.

They're now censoring their own:

Rush Limbaugh: Fox News wouldn't discuss state of GOP - Hadas Gold - POLITICO.com

How amusing...

Elisabeth Hasselbeck to Fox and Friends. She might actually elevate the level of discourse on that show.

It's a local Fox affiliate. KTVU's anchor may be related to Ron Burgandy, but this is a team fail.

They of course tried to blame the NTSB.

I saw that on my Facebook feed. I wonder if that was deliberate, because the editorial failure was momumental.

No wait, no. Having worked in TV news in the past, it is likely that producers got too excited with valuable information and rushed to put it on air. I could imagine they barked orders at the graphic department and everyone else, thus not allowing any room for rational thinking.

Either way, shame!

So, apparently the NTSB did confirm those names. Unbelievable. Still, they should've figured it out.

Huffington Post

Geraldo Rivera, already famous for saying that Trayvon Martin's hoodie got him killed by George Zimmerman, said Friday that he thought Zimmerman would dodge a murder conviction because the nearly all-white jury would probably have killed Martin too.

Rivera was speaking on "Fox & Friends" just as Zimmerman's defense attorneys prepared to deliver their closing argument, thus bringing the trial to a close. He said he had always felt that the case was one of total self-defense on Zimmerman's part, and he blamed Al Sharpton for the case having been brought to trial at all.

Then, he said that the jury would convict because the jurors--all of whom are women and five of whom are white--would have killed Martin too:

"I see those six ladies in the jury putting themselves on that rainy night, in that housing complex that has just been burglarized by three or four different groups of black youngsters from the adjacent community. So it's a dark night, a 6-foot-2-inch hoodie-wearing stranger is in the immediate housing complex. How would the ladies of that jury have reacted? I submit that if they were armed, they would have shot and killed Trayvon Martin a lot sooner than George Zimmerman did. This is self-defense."

Do people actually take Geraldo Rivera seriously? And since he's playing the superficial profiling game, shouldn't his mustache alone render him someone whose opinion is invalid?

HAHAHA BECAUSE THE LIBERAL MEDIA AND STUFF

MSNBC is a sad attempt at rivaling the sheer idiocy of Fox News.
